Changes to Drax

Zuko_ILCZuko_ILC Posts: 1,308 ★★★★
I just realized that the changes to Draxs double hit that stop astral evade would've also been a great counter to wasp and ghosts new moves. Auto counter attack and ghosts phase after evade.

These new mechanics seem to continue the trend of damage for no reason without a counter which needs to stop. Skill is being removed.

    Probably best to just quit the game then...
  • You don't know how will they work exactly. Maybe there is a counter, or maybe not and you need to use a different play style.
    An animation mechanic should never be an ability.

    You still have the other five classes left at least.

    Got to wait till we get the champ to actually see how things play out.

    The point is that they changed him on purpose. Wasp's info is already out she has a % chance to auto counter attack lol......like seriously what a joke now we can't even hit the opponent or we get punished. Just not happy with the direction of the game.

    8% to apply an "antral evade" and it only triggers when she gets a damaging debuff (except bleed). It sounds like something that will hardly be triggered

    It does not say only when she has damaging debuffs, it says she has an 8% chance to shrug those off, then shrink down. If she doesn't have one she still can shrink down and counter at an 8% rate.

    She will still have plenty of counters. AA (the debuff shrug doesn’t work against bleed), GP, Elektra, CB, BW, Cable, Gambit, LC. Not sure if shrink counts as an evade but if so you have Proxima, Iceman, Killmonger, Karnak.

    But what about Drax though?

    The change to Drax without player input was wrong to begin with. I see it as nothing more than a money grab from war. Any player like myself who ranked drax did so with the purpose of war use. We fight mordo every war sometimes multiple times. By taking away Drax ability to bypass they put us in a tougher fight when it matters most to us raising the likelihood of item use need and while it my be minimal, Kabam saw this as an opportunity to make more money, once again damaging player moral and the relationship between Kabam and the players that support it.
  • For her info, it looks like the ability to shrug off debuff and counter attacking work as one mechanic and not two separated things. Meaning it will hardly ever trigger

    Why did they need player input? It was announced at the start when Mordo was introduced that it wasn’t intended. I mean that’s it.

    If it was an issue that wasn’t working correctly way back when mordo came out then it should have been delt with and the issue fixed then. Not months later.

    Wait, Drax doesn't counter astral evade anymore? When did this happen? Don't tell me they're going to nerf willpower next...
